Plug plant problems

Mike, are you telling the OP to wait about five days before planting up?
I don't think that's such a good idea.

I don't know why they called them all crocosmia, my crocosmia have the little corms like rows of beads, the Monbretia is just little pale bulbs that come up one at a time.

crocosmia leaves are erecting and strong, Monbretia are floppy.

Have you got yours yet?

Is that so bad then, getting a work permit.?

plenty of Brits available to do care work or fruit/veg picking, they just don't want to.

not many years ago people would fight to get a job fruit picking, even my daughter, aged 10 at the time, went asparagus picking, and her friends loved potato harvest time, boost their pocket money no end.

The reason I said Agapanthus is that my Monbretia is only about 6" tall so far, very pale bright green and standing erect, not floppy.

my Kaffir Lily's not up at all yet and it's a bit thin for day lily?

Amy how did you get a photo that small, I can't enlarge it either, what are those plugs.

those top ones look lovely, I would be well pleased with those.

i bought, yes folks, bought! trailing begonia plugs from Wyvale this year, half inch tall, they doubled in a week, 5.99 for 20, the reason I didn't buy on line was because they weren't dispatching quick enough. I got mine on the 7th March so plenty of time to grow on.

Sometimes that happens if you're using an iPad, the site isn't iPad/phone friendly, but if you tap or click on the photos they come up the right way.

i think the strapped plants could be Agapanthus, and may look nice at the back of the rockery.

Newbie help please :)

I don't think you can expect miracles in the first year of planting, they are building up their roots first. If that little box is in the sun, trailing Rosemary would look nice interspersed with the peri winkle.

Have you got yours yet?
